Example text

Can therapy be effectively done, then, with all clients mainly through logical analysis and reconstruction? Alas, no. For one thing, many clients are not bright enough to follow a rigorously rational analysis. For another thing, some individuals are so emotionally aberrated by the time they come for help that they are, at least temporarily, in no position to comprehend and follow logical procedures. Still other clients are too old and inflexible; too young and impressionable; too philosophically prejudiced against logic and reason; too organically or biophysically deficient; or too something else to accept, at least at the start of therapy, rational analysis.

So I’ll fool him and avoid doing it . . ” But these sentences were so palpably foolish that the client could not really believe them, and began to finish them off with sentences like: “I’m not really fooling my boss, because he sees what I’m doing . . So I’m not solving my problem this way . . So I really should stop this nonsense and get the inventory-keeping done . . But I’ll be damned if I do it for him! . However, if I don’t do it, I’ll be fired . . But I still don’t want to do it for him!

They often fail to show him, however, how he is presently maintaining his illogical thinking, and precisely what he must do to change it by building general rational philosophies of living and by applying these to practical problems of everyday life. Where most therapists directly or indirectly show the client that he is behaving illogically, the rational therapist goes beyond this point to make a forthright, unequivocal attack on the client’s general and specific irrational ideas and to try to induce him to adopt more rational ones in their place.
